Does anyone have a sub enclousure that you can fit in the trunk that still lets you store the full size glass sun roof in the trunk. Does anyone have this done? Any suggestions/ measurements?
thanks

When I put in my first system in my 93 VR4, I put the subs in the space between the back seats and the trunk area. I managed to fit in two 10" Rockford Audiophile subs and still managed to preserve the sun roof rack in the trunk.

But due to the restrictions in the size of the woofers, when I rebuilt the entire system for an anticipated soundoff competition, I said "hell with the sunroof" and put in a single 12" rockford power series in a custom ported enclosure that still allows me to access my spare tire but doesn't allow me to fit the sun roof anymore.

The problem I had in the end is where to put the amps, DSP, Caps and power stabiliser whilst still allowing me to have access to the spare tire. But it all fit in in the end. I built a false floor for the DSP, Power Stabiliser and Caps that could be raised on a hydraulic arm that let me get to the spare...

Sorry, rambled on a bit, but back to the main point, you could fit a wider enclosure into the trunk that remains below the level of the sun roof holder, but than you would probably lose access to the spare tire. You'll need a balance of priorities, but I would prefer to have my spare than be able to remove the sunroof.

Goos luck, will check with my installer to see if he has pictures of my first system.

Smallbox

What kind of sound did you get from the small box behind the seat, What was it like? Do you have any measurements for it, was it sealed or ported? I'm not lookin for any crazy dB from my GT just some good sound with a little thump thump!! If you had to estimate on what kind of dB the small box had what do you think it was?
Thanks

I made mine myself and for a few guys on the board, raps around the rear portion, sticks 2 inces above the plywood cover. See my pic. It is a pain to make, sound is great, Shane (Aegol), and some other guys I can't remember off the top of my head got them from me, I was only able to make like 1 a week over the summer. Cost if you make it yourself is like $30

small box

The box was a sealed design mounting two 10" RF Audiophile subs that fired into the trunk area. The reason I used the audio philes was that they required a very small sealed enclosure. As for the measurements, well its been over 5 years and I don't have them any more. But they fit snugly in the space just behind the rear seats without interfering with the opening of the spare tire well.

As for dB, at that point we didn't make specific measurements. The bass was good, using the low pass out of a RF Punch 200 and a coil to keep the frequency below 45mhz. BUT its still lacked the real "THUMP" that you get out of a 12" and above in a properly designed box ported or sealed.

If you look at the picture of Good2Go's box, my current box is similar except that its taller and ported and the wiring runs from below and cannot be seen. Also I'm not sure what G2G made his box from, but I molded mine from fibreglass so that it would fit the contours of the side of the trunk.

Regards,

the box is 7 1/2" high, about 1.5 cubic feet. You can vary the volume extended it in towards the spare tire more, like and inch or so. Box is all curved, it requires a lot of pieces to make, I just made a template and I just kept making those pieces so sorry I don't have a plans for it.
